The Standard Market Company


The Standard Market Company is located at the Ferry Road Markets in Southport and is the sister store to the original James Street market store founded in 2002 by Darren Frame and Mitch Love in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley.

Today the Standard Market Company is still a family run business, now owned and operated by Darren, along with his wife Nikki and son Chris.  Although two decades have passed since the inception of Fine Fruit on James, the mission remains the same: to set the standard in food retail by providing customers with the highest quality gourmet foods and ingredients, along with knowledgeable and friendly customer service. 

The mission has always been to be the standard customers can trust. Hand in hand with their fruit vege and meat departments and their bakery and juice bar, The Standard Market Company in Ferry Road runs the gourmet deli Gold Coast customers love.

Stocking a delectable variety of cheeses, pastas, sauces, oils, cured meats and more, customers will find products from brands renowned locally and internationally.

Visit The Standard today to delight your senses, try the hand-marinated olives, pick up some spices and butters to give your meals that extra touch of flavour, or save yourself some effort and take home a lasagne or gourmet pizza.

Darren assures us that you won’t find anywhere else that sources the finest deli products to make sure you go home with the best ingredients in your pantry.
